Christians have turned America into a laughingstock in other parts of the world

Watch this video to see how ridiculous American Christians look to foreigners:

The problem is that there are so many Christians in America that they taint the entire country’s reputation.

    Having lived in the South(Georgia), for the last 10 years, it has been a wild ride, watching these Religious Nuts, do there thing. Its to bad, these People still want to live in the Bronze age.

    Move. It that simple. One of the more refined countries I’m sure wold be tickled to have more atheist. You can leave our great generosity, our intervention on our leadership in the world.

    If you want proof that there is a God, just read the book by the “Billy Graham” of all atheist Antony Flew entitled “There is a God”. Quite embarrassing for atheist considering his prominence for many decades, but Flew simply “followed where the evidence leads”.
    Yes he states he simply followed the evidence and hopefully many atheist not nearly as intelligent as flew or as experienced will do the same.

    You won’t hear about this book or this revelation in the atheist circles because it is quite embarrassing for them.

    No, they do keep that very quiet. It works against their end therefore the news must be suppressed. The most ironic thing is that science led him to the conclusion.

    Ah, this was about Millerites not Christians. Do the lies here no know end or is this just a sign of desperation?

    Since when did a few Brits represent ALL the foreigners?

    Anthony Flew is an embarasment only to himself. Atheism doesn’t work on the basis of “authority figures”

    and as for telling your fellow Americans to leave if they dont believe in your fairytales… whatever happened to freedom of religion? The erosion of the freedoms that made America great in the past are what is making it a disgrace now!

    Gordon get over yourself. You have more freedom as an atheist as you have ever had.

    As a Brit I quite agree. Basically religion in Europe is an embarrassing eccentricity. We try to respect it in public, but people who actually believe anything are given a wide berth. The idea that people would be proud of their religion or parade it in election campaigns is unthinkable.

    We look at America and see a great political system that produces retarded decisions. I go to a lot of American blogs and I’m always shocked that there are intelegant people who dont believe in evolution … because simply thinking about what artificial selection is and then taking that to its logical conclusion makes evolution inevitable.

    I really do feel sorry for you all, it must be so scary to live in a nation led by such idiots.

    Adam we do feel embarrassed with the Obama administration and his minions. Thanks for the sympathy. But we did more in 200 hundred years than you did in centuries. We will be fine.

    Antony Flew’s conversion to Deism is hardly a secret, and not something that I’ve ever seen any effort to suppress. On the contrary, I’ve seen it discussed at length in many different atheist forums as well as publicly addressed by contemporary high profile atheists.

    The simple fact of the matter is that Flew succumbed to the argument from complexity- the fallacious conclusion that complex systems can only arise by deliberate design. It’s an oft-debunked failure of reason, and doesn’t reflect upon atheism at all. As Gordon correctly pointed out, atheism isn’t based upon arguments from authority.

    @Datan0de: “As Gordon correctly pointed out, atheism isn’t based upon arguments from authority.”

    What is atheism based on?

    “the fallacious conclusion that complex systems can only arise by deliberate design.”

    Isn’t fun how atheist will label any argument that does not validate their worldview as fallacious. Look how easy it is to do.

    Atheist succumbed to the argument that God does not exist because complex systems will arise on their own.

    People should quit picking on Flew. Unfortunately, not everyone maintains their mental faculties late in life.

    It is stunning to see that folks are still dragging out the hackneyed arguments of complexity to imply design. Ilya Prigogine laid out the foundations for irreversible thermodynamics which led to self-organizing systems. He received a Nobel Prize in Chemistry for this work in 1977. Analyzing these systems was, and is tremendously difficult since the virtually all the equations describing them do not have analytical solutions and require extreme amounts of numerical computation to get results.

    Why are so many Americans so psychologically damaged and/or stupid (=religious)? Who knows, but is very depressing. It is also very dangerous to the United States and the world. Are we really that far from Iran, where today we see hundreds of thousands adulating Akmadinejad? In the same way theistic religion has put Akmadinejad in power, given the number of folks who believe in “Creation” and the Jesus-myths, is our degeneration that far behind? Think about it, nearly half(2004), then more than half (2008) voted for Bush in this country. It was obvious to anyone Bush was an idiot after four years. Now we have Palin. Can you imagine a simpleton like Palin being taken seriously in this country 50 years ago? Yet, there she was on the ticket with McCain in 2008. There is a good chance that trash will be the top of the Republican ticket in 2012. If so we are doomed. The Chinese will eat us alive.

    Make that 2000 and 2004 on Bush. Folks got a bit wiser in 2008.

    What is really sad is we have another group of individuals who will support the current president even as pathetic and clueless as he has proven to be. They go on how wise they are while pointing out the foolishness of religion but then they show their own stupidity by calling a vote for Barrack H Obama as a wise vote. They probably buy their 10 year old kids Shelby GTs and throw them the car keys. Crazy yes? How can they be taken seriously if there judgment is obviously so poor? Therefore using a process of deduction, their views on God are probably whack as well.
    At this pace, he will easily become the sorriest president since Carter. The same scenario played out under Bush although however as the recent signs have shown have posted “Miss me yet?. “ Careful what you wish for.

    That is true. Just look at ol’ Rich Dawkins.

    No rational person misses Bush. When Bush took over from Clinton, the S&P was at 1465. Under W. we had these Bush/Cheney made calamities: unnecessary wars, tax breaks that miss virtually everyone on this website ( but create Trillions more deficits without creating infrastructure or national wealth, yet enables private equity firms to gut US businesses (with Republican sponsored tax breaks for interest expense deductions) and send jobs overseas for cheaper labor), more than quadrupling the price of oil ( remember where we started the wars?), and incompetent and corrupt governance. Bush leaves with the world monetary systems teetering on collapse (a corollary was any firm needing commercial paper, essentially all firms, was verging on insolvency), two poorly executed wars, the equity markets in free-fall, and government more bloated than ever. As a bonus, the S&P was also at 870 and tanking.

    Obama takes office S&P is at 870, the world is in a nosedive, and within six-weeks, things start looking up. Even with the nihilistic Republicans doing nothing except obstruction, and not learning from their mistakes and failed theories (note even Greenspan admitted utter failure), the S&P is at 1066.09 as I write. He is trying to root out corruption in the health care industry, which is a bigger drain on the economy than the wars. Why isn’t Obama getting high fives? We are going to run bigger deficits to correct the errors of the past. There is no other solution with a positive outcome.

    What has happened to the United States? It is like a bunch of crackers received some new-found wealth and bought a furnished, and landscaped house. Said crackers were thrilled with being rich, but did not know about maintenance, let alone investment. They loved motorized toys that scarred the landscape, burned loads of gasoline, and made the outdoors unpleasant for anyone who enjoyed nature. They did not even have to cook anymore, they could get that fancy expensive frozen food now.

    Over the years, the crackers have become spectacularly fat and diabetic. Predictably the crackers did not maintain their roof or foundation. Leaks appeared, but the crackers did nothing. Nice neighbors tried to offer assistance to the crackers since they could see the outcome was going to be a bad one, but the crackers rebuffed these “elites” The crackers did not want their rights to be crackers tramped upon. The crackers continued to buy new pick-ups, SUVs, motor-boats, ATVs, etc. They did not invest in education or anything else. But, eventually, after decades of neglect, the roof finally collapsed. They had also pissed away their money.

    Fortunately for the crackers, they had long suffering neighbors who got them some help. They started to clear the brambles covering the wrecked 4x4s in the front yard. Some of the nice neighbors even bought some of the junked vehicles to scrap so as to generate cash for the crackers so tarps could be bought to cover the collapsed roof. The previously debt free crackers though had to take out loans to fix their house. They even had to work, as well as quit buying motorized toys and start cooking. The crackers are still spectacularly fat and diabetic, so they are far from out of the woods yet. The nice neighbors, are also still worried about their less nice neighbors, and what will happen to their neighborhood if the crackers get terribly sick and die. We wish them well.

    Folks, now the nice neighbors are trying to help, let’s give them a chance. There is another huge banking crisis looming as small banks start blowing-up as the commercial real-estate market starts to go through what residential housing has and is going through. We will still be lucky if we do not have a depression, as the sins of the past (those from more than 12 months ago) come back to haunt us.

    This site is a time vampire. I’m done.

    LOL. that is about the most ridiculous and partisan bunch of garbage I have read in my life. The king of corruption, this government, attempting to remove corruption from healthcare industry. No thanks, I’ll take my chances in the free market.

    I though atheist were suppose to be rational.

    I beg to differ: America does not have a great political system. We have an archaic, outdated, shitty political system.

    We have a great CONSTITUTION, which ensures our freedoms endure no matter what nitwits like Bush/Cheney et al. try to hijack them. But the political system churns out idiots and criminals for a reason: it’s broken.

    Sorry — that “Anonymous” at #19 was me. My info is usually remembered by the site when I post but that time it wasn’t.
